TabInfo Class

A tab stop.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v19.1.Core.dll

Declaration

[ComVisible(true)]
public class TabInfo

Remarks

Use the ParagraphPropertiesWithTabs.BeginUpdateTabs method to get access to the collection of TabInfo objects for the current paragraph and specify their alignment type via the TabInfo.Alignment property.

Note

To specify default tab stop width, use the Document.DefaultTabWidth property.

Example

This code snippet sets the document measurement Document.Unit to inches and specifies tab stops. Tab stops are set and updated for the current paragraph only (see the Paragraph.BeginUpdateTabs parameter).

document.Unit = DevExpress.Office.DocumentUnit.Inch
Dim tabs As TabInfoCollection = document.Paragraphs(0).BeginUpdateTabs(True)
Dim tab1 As New DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native.TabInfo()
' Sets tab stop at 2.5 inch.
tab1.Position = 2.5F
tab1.Alignment = TabAlignmentType.Left
tab1.Leader = TabLeaderType.MiddleDots
tabs.Add(tab1)
Dim tab2 As New DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native.TabInfo()
tab2.Position = 5.5F
tab2.Alignment = TabAlignmentType.Decimal
tab2.Leader = TabLeaderType.EqualSign
tabs.Add(tab2)
document.Paragraphs(0).EndUpdateTabs(tabs)
